Expired Domain Names and G Penalty
6 months wait for Google indexing

 5:28 pm on Oct 13, 2004 (gmt 0)

A bunch of quality expired domain names that I purchased around March (not for PR, cough cough) that were grey barred in G seem to have gotten their quarantine/penalty lifted after this PR update.

They definitely have had their PR reset, but they're being cached now, and getting Google Search traffic.

Next test is to see if new inbound links will give them PR again.

Good news for domain recyclers.

True, that's good news for domain recyclers.

However, keep in mind that I've bought plenty of expired domains in the past few months and I can tell you from personal expereince that you don't have to wait 6 months. In fact, all you have to do is ask.

I've bought plenty of expired domains in the past few months, put quality content on them, asked for a reinclusion request, and got those domains back in the index, with PR and links restored, in just a few weeks.

I think, though, the key was putting quality content on them and asking for a reinclusion.
